We giggled giddily as the hair piled to the floor. It was fabulous! A sincere mohawk.....to get a rise from the children.
And did we ever. Like perfect timing, as I clipped off the last patch of hair, daughter Sledge came bounding into the bathroom to ask a question....."Momma? Momma? Can we go to MacDonald's today for lun----" Sledge stopped in her sentence, "Whu? Whu?What is that?"
"It's Daddy's new haircut!" I answered.
"Ut-un! No WAAAAY! Momma! Cut it off, cut it!"
Big Daddy laughed, "What's wrong with it? I think it looks cool!"
"You can't keep it like that, Daddy!"insisted Sledge.
"Hey, did you want to go to McDonald's?" Big Daddy asked.
Sledge quickly changed her mind. She no longer wanted to go IN McDonald's, she wanted to go through the drive through. Big Daddy insisted that they go into McDonald's for lunch.
After a debate, Sledge headed downstairs to get more opinions and to spread the word on her conservative daddy's new haircut to her even more conservative brothers.
The three of them rushed back upstairs to see if Sledge was being overly dramatic. Their mouths hit the floor when they saw Big Daddy's newly shaved mohawked head.
After a great discussion a hat was out onto the head and out the door they went. It played out quite funny through Sunday, until I cut off the remaining hair for the military cut that Big Daddy likes. "It's easy to maintain, cuts down on shampoo and I don't have to brush my hair..."
It was a funny weekend, to watch the three children squirm.
This weekend, I took yet some more portraits. Tis the season!
You can view some preview pics of those portraits at Photographic Memories Blog.
I also added some new pictures in my smugmug photo gallery.
